James Perse mixed media pants (size 3)
Rag & Bone/JEAN top (very old)
Vince blair sneakers (also very old!)
Early in my pregnancy when nothing fit comfortably, I bought a pair of James Perse pants on sale at Shopbop because I knew they would fit and be comfortable on my growing belly; at least I would have something to wear that still felt like “me.” And James Perse ALWAYS works for me – it has since I started wearing items from the brand in 2004. Early on I was size 4 and then before pregnancy I was size 1. Now I’m size 3.
So now that I still can’t fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes, I went to JP again and bought the mixed media pants at Shopbop with this recent coupon code. They fit me perfectly, and help me to feel more like myself at a time when I am seriously struggling with that. James Perse to the rescue. Again.
Of course the Shopbop code is good for brands other than James Perse, like Mara Hoffman (this jacket!!!) and Rachel Comey (this jumpsuit!!!), but I always use it to stock up on James Perse. (it’s also a good time to try the brand if you haven’t before, since items are not final sale…)
Anyway, if you are so inclined and are shopping for new clothes, through tomorrow (9/27), use code STOCKUP19 for 20% off orders under $500 and 25% off orders over $500 at Shopbop. The code isn’t valid on everything, certain designers are excluded.
